The California Golden Bears will travel to the great northwest and take on the Washington Huskies for a Pac-12 battle this Wednesday night.
HISTORY: These two schools have met multiple times in every season since 1971, crossed paths a whopping 143 times. Cal narrowly leads the all-time series 73-70, and they’ve traded each of the past four meetings.
Cal may be slightly favored to win on the road here.
Cal Golden Bears
Cal closed the non-conference slate by winning four straight and starting conference play with a 24-point win over Arizona State. They’ve dropped their last two in-state rivals USC and UCLA, and with this trip to Seattle followed by a trip to Pullman, the Golden Bears will need to avoid a larger skid occuring.
Andre Kelly is enjoying a strong senior season thus far. The 6’9 forward double-doubled against USC, before scoring 22 points in the loss to UCLA. He’s been Cal’s leader on both sides of the ball and he paces the team in scoring (15.1) and rebounding (8.6).
Fellow senior Grant Anticevich joins him up front. The 6’9 Aussie had a monster game against Pacific, scoring a career-high 25 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. Anticevich is averaging 11.9 ppg and 7.6 rpg.
Jordan Shepherd has been an excellent addition to the lineup after coming over from Charlotte. The fifth-year senior is averaging a career-best 14.3 ppg, good for second on the team.
Third-year guard Joel Brown brings stability and experience to the point guard position, and leads Cal with 4.1 apg.
Washington took a few bumps during non-conference play, but they blessed bettors with a +350 road victory over Utah last Tuesday.
The Huskies have struggled to score at times this season, but they have one of the best point producers in the PAC-12 in Terrell Brown Jr. The Seattle bred scorer leads UW with 20.7 ppg, and they often have gone as far as he can take them. Brown Jr’s 28 points against his former school Arizona was impressive.
Tacoma native Emmitt Matthews Jr. also came home this past offseason and he’s fit in well early. The WVU transfer is second on the team in both scoring (11.5) and rebounding (4.8), and he double-doubled in the win over Seattle. Fellow transfer guard Daejon Davis scored 16 points in the win over Utah.
Jamal Bey returned for his senior season, and although he’s taken a bit of a back seat this season, the veteran guard remains a threat to explode on any given night. Bey averages 8.9 ppg and 4.3 rpg.
Nate Roberts leads the Huskies in rebounding (6.2).
CBB Betting Trends:

4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Washington ML
Cal and Washington have both struggled to score at times this season, and this feels like the type of game to trust one player. We like Terrell Brown Jr. in this home spot. The shots have been there and he’s been filling it up. This matchup be a close one.
Take Washington’s moneyline, and monitor the under with both teams struggling to produce big numbers offensively.
